Happy 1st day of Summer!
I love summer with all it's green, and pretty flowers.I get so excited each year when my gladiolus come up. They are the only perennials I have planted as of right now. Each year, I plant sunflowers and last year, I planted daisies, and a few pumpkin seeds. The daisies and pumpkins never came up, but my sunflowers were gorgeous as always. I think I planted the pumpkins too early last year, so I'm trying again this year. One of my flower beds was empty on one side, since my daisies didn't come up so I cleaned up that area and planted a few pumpkin seeds a couple weeks ago. I wasn't really expecting anything to come up since last year they didn't, but you see those little green sprouts?? Those are pumpkin sprouts!! I wasn't sure if they were pumpkin sprouts at first, so I did a search online and they are!! I didn't plant huge pumpkins, just little sugar ones, but I'm so excited! I will be content if I get just one pumpkin.
Every evening, I've been going out and watering my flowers and fern in the front on the porch. I haven't killed the fern yet! Yay me! Everything is thriving! This weekend on a morning flower checkin, I had a visitor. He let me take several pictures, while he enjoyed the sunshine and flower nectar. I seem to get little visitors every summer. Here are some from last year.
